Rather Good French TV serial on the Resistance fighters
9 December 2016 | by t-dooley-69-386916See all my reviews

This is a six part dramatisation of the fledgling resistance movement that grew up in France after the German invasion in 1940. It is told through the eyes of Lili (Pauline Burlet 'The Past') and her close friend and 'brother' Jeannot - Tom Hudson.

It deals with the escalation as the atrocities grow so too does the resolve of those fighting to free themselves from it. It covers the entire period of the War too so you can see the progress of what took place.

This is a very realistic portrayal, as far as I can tell, in that it does not romanticise the terrible struggle but shows how desperate it can be. 'Army of Shadows' is arguably the most graphic at doing this and some could, rightly, argue that this is deliberately softer. Still the point is made that there were many losers and some who lost in different ways – even the 'traitors'.

It is very well made too with some great period pieces and some wonderful cars. The limits of the production budget can be seen in the limitation of some of location shoots but none of that will detract from what is a commendable piece of television.
